CfMC welcomed Mary McDougall as President & Chief Executive Officer for CfMC, effective January 21, 2013. Outgoing President & CEO Danny Wong will remain on the leadership team as an active member of CfMC’s Board of Directors and in his new role as Chief Technology Officer where Danny will focus on strategic software development and continue to be actively involved with CfMC’s customers and partners.
Mary brings over 20 years of experience in business management, executive leadership, strategic planning and operational roles. She joins us from BMC Software where she recently led the company’s transformation from traditional software developer to software-as-a-service provider. Her prior focus has been on the ‘last mile’ in bringing products to market, creating strategic partnerships, channel programs, and developer initiatives that help customers realize greater value from their technology investments.
Before joining BMC in 2004, Mary founded IronSpire, a SaaS project collaboration service for general contractors, and was instrumental in growing two other software ventures. As a coach and mentor for Astia, Mary helps women-led businesses gain access to capital and serves as an Advisory Board member for San Jose State’s Engineering Business school where she contributes as an author and speaker.
Mary was also one of the first women to earn an Engineering degree from Dartmouth College before getting her MBA from Harvard Business School. You can read more about Mary on her Linked In profile.
These changes in the CfMC management team strengthen our continued focus on renewal and investment in core offerings to the marketing research and opinion polling industries. Adding Mary to the team and shifting Danny Wong’s focus to R&D-related tasks positions CfMC to more effectively bring new capabilities to market and build on the foundation of excellence delivered to CfMC clients over the years.
If not before, you can also meet Mary in person at the CfMC Users’ Conference April 18-19, 2013, in Tampa, Florida. We hope to see you all there.Categories: CfMC News
